White Chocolate Valentine Hearts

Yum
So what's your favorite chocolate?  When the box of chocolates arrives in front of you, which one do you devour first?  Dark chocolate?  Coconut or caramel filled?  Or do you just say, no?  Yeah, right?  Sometimes it is super fun to "sample" snack your way through the box to know which is which, you know...making sure all is good and safe for your family.  You are the best!  Always looking out for your loved ones!

Did you know that what chocolate you prefer to eat says a lot about your core personality!  Life's Goodness Blog has the low down...check it out and see what your fav chocolate says about you!  I like them all, so I guess that just means I'm a little bit nutty?

Anyway, that leads me to a really good treat you can make for Valentine's Day and the secret ???
...it uses up those leftover candy canes!

White Chocolate Valentine Hearts
 Aren't they cute looking?!


They are so easy to make.  I saw these several years ago in a local magazine.  And every year I have left over candy canes...so this is perfect!

Here's what you do...

Ingredients:
mini candy canes
1 bag of white chocolate chips
Valentine colored sprinkles

On a sheet of waxed paper, place the candy canes in a heart shape.  Melt the white chocolate in a quart size baggie.  Melt in the microwave at 30 second intervals.  After each interval, knead the chocolate.  Keep up the process until the white chocolate is melted.  Cut a small tip off the corner of the baggie and pipe into the center of the candy cane shaped hearts.  Sprinkle with the Valentine colored sprinkles.  Let cool at room temperature.


You didn't know that you could be a candymaker, did you?  These are so easy, yummy and look pretty fancy!

In the words of Forrest Gump, "Life is a box of chocolates.  You never know what you are going to get."  But, with these white chocolate Valentine hearts...you know what you are going to get...a special Valentine Treat!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
